Tullhusbron/Tullhus bridge

Not very fresh news, but a rather nice bridge.

Snow-free heated bridge opens in Sweden

Quote:
A Stockholm architecture firm has completed a pedestrian bridge with a built-in heating system to keep it clear of ice and snow.
Bridges typically ice up faster than roads and pavements because they have more exposed surfaces, so Erik Andersson Architects solved the problem by circulating warm air through the structure.
The bridge is like a hollow beam with hot air inside it, explained Erik Andersson. "As we only wanted to heat the walkway, we used insulation to direct the heat to the right place," he told Dezeen.
"We wanted a slim bridge and the conventional heating alternatives would have made the bridge too fat."
Located in Norrköping, approximately 100 miles south-west of Stockholm, Tullhus Bridge provides a route between the new residential area of Strömsholmen and the north quay in the city centre.
The steel walkway spans just over 70 metres and has an hourglass body that tapers towards the middle, while LED bulbs have been fitted under the handrails to illuminate the bridge at night.

Tranebergsbron (The Traneberg bridge)

Stretching over the strait Tranebergssund it connects the major island Kungsholmen to the western suburb Bromma. It has a road and also metro tracks. The history of this bridge is remarkable, as well.

I love the colours on the Uddevalla Bridge and also the photo of it in fog. Must be pretty tricky driving over it in that kind of weather. Do they shut it down?

E22 Verkebäcksbron ~ 10km west of Västervik. The bridge was built in the 1950's and replaced the small route through the valley and through the village Verkebäck. This is AFAIK the best "Märklin location" in Sweden since the landscape combines a railway track through the valley, the valley itself has a small village with an equally small highway next to the sea (the highway itself crosses the railway in a level crossing) and lastly a high bridge across the valley for through-traffic which overlooks the whole landscape.

From above the bridge, the road below was the main route until replaced by the bridge. The railway is nowadays a museal line with summer traffic only (Hultsfred - Västervik):

A postcard from the 1950's. The stretch of road which the bridge replaced was still gravel even though it had been one of the highest-ranking routes in Sweden (Riksväg 4 Malmö-Kalmar-Norrköping):

A more recent postcard:
